10. ) The transduction method can reduce a network of many more NOR gates into a new network with as few gates as possible, more efficiently than the integer-programming logic-design method, though the absolute minimization of the number of gates is not guaranteed. ) The processing time by the 34 SABURO MUROGA transduction method is much shorter than by the integer-programming logicdesign method (by two orders of magnitude for the design of a network of 10 NOR gates) and increases more slowly as the number of gates increases (as illustrated in Fig.

Rn The MSPF of a gate, connection, or input terminal can be found by examining whether any function may change the network outputs. But far more efficiently,MSPFs throughout the network can be calculated by the following procedure. 3: Calculation of MSPFs in a network. MSPFs of every gate, connection, and input terminal in a network can be calculated, starting from the outputs of the network and moving toward the input terminals, as follows: 1. Suppose we want to realize a network that has input variables xl, x 2 , ..

When there is a permissible function with * in the second component, any other permissible function, gk, can be replaced by gk itself whose second component is replaced by *. For example, a permissible function g3 = (1110.. ) in Table I1 can be replaced by another permissible function (1* 10.. ). This is because the value of each component of the output function is independent of any other component. (In other words, the value of the output function at each gate for a combination of values of xl, x2,.
